Hi! I’m Barb Eimer and I’m a Certified Professional Organizer®! Welcome to YIKES ORGANIZING! I specialize in residential organizing in the greater Nashville area.
I wish I could say that I’ve always wanted to be a professional organizer but the truth is that I’m a late bloomer. I started writing in my thirties. I decided to be a professional organizer in my 40’s. In retrospect, I did have the ideal background to do this with six kids (no, that wasn’t a typo!) and more than 20 moves in my lifetime.
I have lived on three continents and in a 600-square-foot apartment (tiny home sounds SO much cooler!) and a six bedroom, six bath house so I understand organizational dilemmas on both sides of the spectrum.
I also understand how one day life seems to be rolling along fine and the next day somehow you are in total “overwhelm” mode. I know what it’s like to be embarrassed when someone stops by unexpectedly and I’ve lost important papers, money and even a child once or twice!
But I’ve come a long way and since becoming a professional organizer in 2012 have done all I could to advance in my profession. I’ve become a Certified Professional Organizer® and am the Vice President of the Nashville NAPO (National Association of Professional Organizers) Chapter. I’m also active in NAPO national as an editor for the NAPO News and on the item writing committee for the BCPO® (Board of Certified Professional Organizers).
I love what I do and would love to meet with you to see how I can help.
